three years of science and at least three years of social science, comparedded to those who students who did not complete a core curriculum, those students completing a core curriculum scored 144 points higher on the s.a.t. >> suarez: what do we know about the predictive value of the test itself? you have a threshold for college readiness. if you go into an institution of higher learning without reaching that threshold, are you automatically going to fail, not complete? what do we know? >> absolutely not. that threshold is a guide. it allows us to look at groups of students. what we know is that the group of students who meet the threshold have a 65% likelihood of achieving a b-minus g.p.a. or higher during their freshman year. obviously there are other factors that admission officers take into consideration. but it does help guide us in thinking about where we are and the need to have more students better prepared for college. currently of 100 ninth graders, 44 will go on to college. yet only 21 will graduate within a six-year period. this is highly problematic. >> suarez: roger thompso

with the same science? >> well, i don't believe that, i believe what they are doing is reweighting the data. that would not establish a trend. the accurate polling which is no reason to go to the polls. go to the accurate one. rasmussen shows the race within a point or two in each of the states . by the way, the trend in rasmussen and in my own poling is that romney was doing foin in august and fell back because of the democratic convention and recovered at end of last week and now even . that is the reality. if the election were held today. romney would carry ohio, florida, nevada, virge virge and a shot at wisconsin where i am today. and would win over 300 electoral votes. the media is deliberately or inadvertantly and wrongly showing the race to be different. >> brian: new york times and washington post using that science having him trailing in all three . nationally everyone said it is a dead heat. dick, stick around. we have to talk to you more. coming up there is no doubt about it that the attack in libya was an act of terror, why does the president blame a movie. dick morris has an i
